Brewers-Cubs game postponed Wednesday

The way their closers were struggling, Cubs manager Dale Sveum and the Brewers' Ron Roenicke could probably feel each other's pain.

Both cut the cord this week.

In Chicago, that meant Carlos Marmol was out as closer. In Milwaukee, it was John Axford getting, well, axed.

And on Wednesday, everyone was getting a breather.

The game between the Cubs and Brewers was postponed due to inclement weather, with the makeup scheduled for July 30 as part of a day-night doubleheader.

Scott Feldman, scheduled to start for the Cubs, will pitch Thursday against the San Francisco Giants. With the Brewers off Thursday, Kyle Lohse got pushed back two days and will start against his former team when the Brewers open a weekend series at St. Louis on Friday.

The postponement came on the heels of the Cubs beating Milwaukee 6-3 Tuesday on a night when the game-time temperature was 39 degrees and a steady wind blew through Wrigley Field.

The conditions were no better Wednesday, so the game got called off. Considering the way they've been struggling, a breather might not be such a bad thing for these teams.
